Something Cool from OpenWorld

I forgot to mention this in my OpenWorld recap post, but it’s probably just as well. It might have been lost with the rest of the content. Dan Norris was talking about what he does, apparently he works, and he mentioned the Fall Saver. I guess Dan works with Piocon, and Piocon won a Titan… Read More

Back from OpenWorld

Sure, I got back from OpenWorld last Thursday, but I’m only now willing to get back in the saddle and blog about it. As I mentioned to a few of the Enterprise Irregulars who attended, OpenWorld is a marathon. Imagine a full day sessions, quietly sitting and listening, tons of walking around San Francisco, meeting… Read More

Off to OpenWorld

I’m headed out to San Francisco early tomorrow morning and will be around the event all day, probably on Twitter. I’m debating whether to take both the Macbook and PC. The Macbook’s battery life is a huge plus, whereas the PC can barely get booted on a full charge, which is annoying at best.  The… Read More

Twitter + OpenWorld and More

It seems like Twitter will be part of OpenWorld, if Eddie and I have anything to do with it. Floyd says he’s making his first foray into Twiterville at OpenWorld. He’s soliciting questions OAUG Fusion Council Panel on Sunday afternoon. So, tweet away with your questions. Tim, on the other hand, doesn’t get Twitter and… Read More

Cool Stuff is Happening

If you read this blog, you’ll know I use Twitter, as do many of the people I interact with virtually. Recently, Twitter and its use created a strange alliance that is a powerful case study for new web collaboration. This alliance made up of a person from SAP, a person from Oracle, an Oracle customer,… Read More

AppsLab Meetup

As we roll towards OpenWorld next week, it’s key to have each evening planned as well as the days. After all, conferences are a great chance to catch up with old friends, make new ones and put a real world face to a digital voice. In that spirit, join us at the AppsLab meetup, which… Read More

Sharing OpenWorld

Heading into OpenWorld next week, there are a few tools that you can use to broadcast your experiences and consume updates from the conference. Eddie has a great post today, detailing how to send pictures to the Oracle OpenWorld 2007 Flickr group. Just send an email to future09ideas at photos dot flickr dot com. You… Read More

More OpenWorld Blogger Updates

Dennis pinged me over Twitter asking for keynote details for OpenWorld. So, I figured rather than talk about the elephant in the room, i.e. OpenSocial about which I know nothing, honestly, I would avoid the subject. First, the official OpenWorld Agenda and Show Guide is available here. This is exactly the same one you’ll get… Read More

OpenWorld Blogger Update

So, a few updates for those interested in attending OpenWorld as a blogger. The registration process is now working, and we have a few confirmed attendees, including Vinnie and Jeff, who have also graciously offered to help plan the agenda for bloggers, which I think is still in the works. Because of the sheer number… Read More

A Can of Worms

If there was any remaining doubt that this blog has slipped into Seinfeld territory, I am sealing the deal by blogging about the comments on a seemingly innocent post from Friday called “Bloggers at OpenWorld“. The issue at hand is about providing recompense for time lost/expenses incurred for attendees. Here are the arguments in no… Read More

Bloggers at OpenWorld

I’m happy to announce that Oracle OpenWorld this year will be open to bloggers for the first time. Oracle has extended an invitation to leaders in the blogging community, who can come experience the pageantry of an entire city block covered by a huge tent (oh and the conference). Qualified bloggers can register for OpenWorld… Read More

AppsLab on Oracle Techcasts

Justin recently published an interview podcast he did with Paul to the Oracle Techcasts. Have a listen if you want to know where we came from, what we’re doing, or just want to hear what Paul and Justin sound like. Paul already blogged about it, so I’m not adding any value, just boosting Justin’s trackbacks.… Read More
